Chris Beaumont

I am a Software Engineer at Counsyl, where I build tools that help people understand their genetic information. Prior to this, I was a software engineer at Harvard's Center for Astrophysics, where I built tools like Glue to visualize data from the James Webb Space Telescope. I received my PhD in astronomy from the University of Hawaii's Institute for Astronomy in 2013.

You can find me on Twitter or GitHub, or take a look at my C.V.
